Travelling North to Mosoriot Campus
Koitaleel Samoei University, named after the hero Koitaleel Araap Samoei, is the first public university college in Nandi County. The formation process of the university began in the year 2012 but picked up with speed in 2015. Serious operations began in 2017 after the laying of the foundation stone by President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nandi-Hills Main Campus.
The first cohort of students were admitted in August 2019 and the college has since grown to full operations. The College currently has a slightly above 350 students pursuing Undergraduate and Masters Programmes in the Schools of Business and Education.
Located in Mosoriot Campus, along Eldoret-Kapsabet Highway, the college offers infinite opportunities for potential students, lecturers and investors. The location is conveniently accessible from Eldoret and Kapsabet towns in a span of less than half-an-hour drive. The Eldoret International Airport is even closer at 13km thus becoming a convenient destination for anyone travelling by air. Other closer major towns are Nakuru, Kakamega, Bungoma and Kisumu City.
Nandi County, being the source of world sports Champions like Eliud Kipchoge, Janet Jepkosgey and many more, is not only blessed with the sporting talent but is also endowed with natural beauty and good people.
Travelling from the South (Kisumu, Kisii, Kericho, Homabay) exposes one to beautiful hills with scenic meanders along Chepsangor area in Nandi-Hills. Nandi Hills, the home of the hero Koitaleel Araap Samoei will also be the home of Koitaleel Samoei University's Main Campus. The slow climb ends on the beautiful tea estates that stretch along the road all the way towards Kapsabet town, the headquarters of Nandi County.
Kapsabet is among Kenya’s oldest towns that has steadily grown to become a home of more than 80,000 people. It is majorly an administrative and commercial centre. It has also been earmarked to host Koitaleel College of Health Sciences due to the growing Kapsabet County Referral Hospital. Kapsabet is an important town that connects the Rift-Valley with Western Kenya.
Moving from Kapsabet to Mosoriot takes you through Kingwal Swamp, the second home of the rare Sitatunga. The Swamp is right beside the road and a lucky person can spot the Sitatunga late in the evening or very early in the morning. The drive further leads you to Mosoriot town through King Solomon’s Garden and Letangwo Park. These are very serene places to have a meal and unwind. The natural and well-manicured lawns completes the bliss.
